HIS LIGHT IS OUR GUIDE
It was still dark outside when I woke up early one morning, so to avoid disturbing others in the house; I did not turn on the light. In the dark, I found my slippers and my bathrobe and put them on. Then I moved carefully toward the bedroom door, slowly I turned the corner at the top of the stairs and reached for the railing. My foot found the first step and I went safely down the stairs. At the bottom, I turned and went into the kitchen. There I turned
on the light over the stove and made myself a cup of coffee.
All of this shows that I can get around fairly well in the dark. I really don't need a light when I'm in familiar surroundings. In fact, it is quite easy, you might even say -effortless.
But, all in all, when I have a choice - it is far easier and safer to turn on the light and then move around with the smooth efficiency, grace and complete confidence that the light provides.
There is an old saying that hindsight is 20/20. In other words. We can look back - after we've done something - and see everything clearly in the light of our experience. That's how it is when I look back at my early struggles in life. Every new experience was like being in an unfamiliar room where I was trying to find my way around in the dark.
I constantly stumbled, or fell or was bruised and hurt. In short, it was a bad time for me.
Now that I know Jesus - I not only see better, but I also have a confident vision of what is ahead. In fact, just knowing Him gives me all the courage I need to step - into tomorrow with no fear whatsoever.
In fact, I know for sure, both you and I, - all of us - can move safely into the unknown future with the sure conviction that we are guided by Jesus as we walk - in His light.
